How much do I love Sumac? So much! This much! My heart is so full!
It was a blast to see everyone yesterday. I was able to welcome students via Zoom and Google Meets today. Thank you for bearing the heat with us and thank you for another great start to the school year.
I hope everyone is enjoying their teacher meetings. Thank you to our teachers for taking the time to ease our minds and approach this transition with a more white-gloved strategy. Remember we are easing into the academic and taking time to learn routines and build relationships.
Remember to submit your virtual voyager vouchers to hear the name of a Valiant Voyager on my next week's Friday message.
